Mixed Herbs Fried Rice With Omelette Shreds Topping

Piggy Cuz bought back a few bottles of mixed herbs for me from UK and now I can use it generously :p She is such a gem and brought back birthday pressies from UK for me for my birthday. Will show you what she gave me when the big day comes * wink...well... soon... patience :)  She always springs surprises on me...but I do love surprises though !  Thanks Piggy Cuz for the pressies.

Back to this fried rice..well..I make it simple by just adding dried mixed herbs, chopped chicken ham, dash of white pepper and sea salt.  Garnish with omelette shreds....this is want I meant by simple cooking. I blanched some lettuce and garnish with deep fried crispy garlic and oyster sauce to go with the fried rice. Yummy!  Daddy to eat simple for a day  days to come  :p till I get back my stamina !

The last time I fried this italian herb rice was with shrimps but this time round,  I used chicken ham chopped into bits was so fragrant and I wanted to make it special , I added some omelette shreds as topping to hookwink Daddy so that he won't say I simply fry the rice just because I want to have a quick one...ahem a fuss -free dinner I mean * wink . I  blanched some lettuce and add some  garlic oil  to it. That is how simple our meals are these days.... I have to thank my boss for that of course :p

I like the rice not soggy but cooked and yet firm....

the chicken ham gave the rice extra flavor and it blends
well with the mixed herbs........

blanched lettuce with garlic oil and oyster sauce 
make a good side dish for the fried rice......

a simple meal but a delish for us both.......

Happy feasting :)
